Did you see yesterday’s wintry Cornish reindeer photoshoot? If not you must go take a look – it’s stunning! Today I’ve got part 2 of the photoshoot that was dreamt up by wedding photographer Sarah Falugo (who also runs Green Photographic) and took place at Cornish wedding venue Gwel an Mor.
Yesterday the setting was a wild and windswept landscape, today a sheltered woodland featuring lush floral arrangements full of ferns and blackberries. For a photoshoot done on a budget, it is overflowing with lovely inspiration and ideas that can easily be recreated for your own wedding.
Despite it’s wintery themes, the shoot took place in August (can you believe it!) which explains the soft blush dahlias you can spot in the floral arrangements – no doubt from The Blue Carrot’s cutting garden.
I am so thrilled to share this photoshoot with you, and what could be lovelier than a bridal shoot featuring a reindeer, some owls, the beautiful windswept Cornish landscape, and a lush woodland? Oh, and a handful of TNWC recommended wedding suppliers.
There are just so many lovely photos from this shoot that I struggled to narrow it down – so rather than only share a handful I’ve decided to split the shoot into two parts to allow you to enjoy them all.
Laid back Cornish spring wedding
Sarah of Green Photographic recently captured the lovely laid back Easter wedding of Sal and George, who got married near Newquay and included a beach walk with their guests during the afternoon. I have a softspot for Devon and Cornwall, especially during spring time, so I hope you enjoy this pretty country and seaside wedding as much I did.
The lovely Sarah from Green Photographic is offering couples a free vintage photobooth worth £100 with all wedding photography bookings made before the end of March 2012. The photobooth is lots of fun and great for the early evening, giving you and your guests a chance to all get fun and original studio portraits.
Green Photographic are documentary and reportage style photographers, with a relaxed and creative approach. Sarah and her assistants pride themselves on being unobtrusive photographers – allowing your wedding day to run just the way you want without the photographers stealing the show.
Green Photographic is also committed to the environment, printing all stationery on 100% recycled paper using eco inks and sourcing albums from within the UK. Their disc only packages mean you can print as many or as little pictures as you like and all fuel used in conjunction with photographic commissions is off-set with an annual donation to Carbon Footprint.
I feel very lucky to be able to share today’s wedding with you all – the wedding took place at St Michael De Rupe Church on the top of Brentor in Devon. Not only is this tiny, windswept church one of the highest and smallest in England but it’s also very close to my heart.
My granny grew up on a farm in Brentor village that sits beneath this ancient hill. A large part of my family come from this part of Devon, I have ridden across Blackdown (the surrounding moors) throughout my childhood, and my great granny had her 90th birthday on Brentor.
So before I get carried away with my family history, this is a special place to me – so a big thank you to photographer Sarah Falugo of Green Photographic for letting me feature this wedding.
It’s hard to know where to begin telling you about our visit to Cornish Tipi Weddings because you really have to visit to get a feel for what this place is really like. You need to go and soak it up, all the beautiful photographs will only go so far in showing you what a special place it is.
I’ve supplemented my own photos with those from Cornish Tipi Weddings and Green Photographic as I think that seeing weddings happening on site gives you the best feel for what it would be like, short of visiting yourself.
Following our directions to Cornish Tipi Weddings (also Cornish Tipi Holidays) we pulled off the lane and headed down a bumpy track. We were greeted by Oggy, the warm and welcoming warden who takes care of the site, before following him down into the woodland towards our tipi. All the paths were just like this…
The site is set amongst 16 acres of secret woodland, each tipi nestled amongst its own woodland glade – ours was high up above the lake and aptly named ‘Overlake’. Cornish Tipi Holidays is just like camping, but you don’t have to take a tent or cooking equipment, these are all provided. This was our tipi…
The lovely Sarah from Green Photographic is offering one lucky couple of free engagement session or “love shoot” when they book their wedding photography. This is on offer for the next wedding booking they take – so don’t delay!
